Michael: [ Sighs ]

Lauren: [ Chuckles ]

[ Gasps, sighs ] Oh, do you hear that?

Michael: The music of love?

Lauren: [ Laughs ] No, no. The silence of no phones ringing...

Michael: Oh, yes.

Lauren: ...No clacking of computer keys...

Michael: Yes. Mm-hmm.

Lauren: ...No scratching of pens across legal pads. Just us. Alone.

Michael: Mm. Blissful.

Michael: Yes.

Lauren: Heaven.

[ Lock clicks ]

Michael: Oh.

Scott: Oh, man. Sorry, guys.

Lauren: [ Laughs ]

Scott: Thought I'd stop home and say hi to mom, but my timing is obviously, uh... just pretend I was never here, okay?

Michael: Works for me.

Lauren: No, no, no, no, no! Scott! [ Scoffs ] I haven't talked to you since you've moved out. How are you? How's sharon?

Scott: Do you really want to know?

Nick: Sharon, why would you think alice johnson is involved in a sex-trafficking ring?

Sharon: Look at this picture I took.

Nick: It's a car driving away.

Sharon: From the police station. I also saw two prostitutes get into that car, along with the man who had just bailed them out. Can you see the driver?

Nick: Yeah, it looks like a blond woman. That doesn't prove anything.

Sharon: I just saw alice drive away in the parking lot when I ran out to give her her credit card. Same car. Same blond hair.

Nick: Sharon, what --

Sharon: I know. I know it sounds impossible. But, nick, I'd bet anything it's her.

[ Knock on door ]

Ashley: Come in.

Ravi: Hey.

Ashley: Hey!

Ravi: How was your walk?

Ashley: Good.

Ravi: I was a little concerned. You and dina...seemed tense.

Ashley: Yeah. I appreciate you giving me the space to clear my head.

Ravi: If you'd like, I think I know of another technique that might help.

Ashley: Um... I think I'm just gonna focus on work right now.

Ravi: Yeah. Okay. Work. No distractions. Got it. Just, uh... stroke my cheek. Yeah.

Neil: This is some incredible sushi. Thank you.

Victoria: You're welcome.

Neil: Mmm!

Victoria: You know, billy and I have become takeout experts. Working lunches, working dinners... working midnight snacks.

Neil: Mm-hmm. Well, now that you have some breathing room, you don't have to put in so many brutal hours, do you?

Victoria: That's true. It's nice to have goals. Oh!

Neil: Hm?

Victoria: Speaking of which, I put together a brief. It's a summary of everything that brash & sassy has in the pipeline.

Neil: Wow. You did this for me?

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Well, for you and devon. Hamilton-winters. Since you extended us the bridge loan, I just thought you'd want to know how your investment money is being spent.

Neil: I appreciate that. And I will take this with me and read it later, okay?

Victoria: All right. By all means.

Neil: You know, vicki, you don't have to keep us apprised on every move the company makes. Devon and I trust you to run things as you see fit. Okay?

Victoria: Thank you, neil. That's nice to hear. Sometimes it's kind of tough not knowing who's on your side.

Phyllis: So, what are you thinking? Takeout or go out? What are you doing?

Ashley: Ravi...

Ravi: Yes?

Ashley: Didn't you hear me say I want to focus on work?

Ravi: Oh, yeah. I heard you. Yeah.

Ashley: So what are you doing?

Ravi: Uh, just humor me. Please.

Ashley: Wow.

Ravi: Smooth, right?

Ashley: Is that the parker beauty moisturizer?

Ravi: Yes, it is.

Ashley: The one that I've been experimenting on?

Ravi: Yep. As you know, I like to fully immerse myself in all aspects of the business.

Ashley: And as you know, I've been focusing on making our latest acquisition into one of jabot's biggest money makers.

Ravi: At the r&d conference in new york, when you suggested jabot should buy them, I was skeptical.

Ashley: Oh, really?

Ravi: As it turns out, your instincts were spot-on.

Ashley: Well, thank you for the compliment. And thank you for trying the moisturizer. Actually, you just gave me a hell of an idea. What if we marketed at least part of the line as unisex?

Ravi: That's an amazing idea.

Ashley: Yeah?

Ravi: Yeah. Yeah, guys my age are totally into taking care of ourselves.

Ashley: Right?

Ravi: Yeah, it all started with sunscreen getting so big. You know, "who wants their skin to age before it has to?" That's not a girl/guy thing. That's an everybody thing.

Ashley: Exactly. So what do you think? A little light anti-aging moisturizer with sunscreen in the morning.

Ravi: And then a full-on moisturizer at night.

Ashley: Yes!

Ravi: Yeah, we use so much product in our hair, why not our face?

Ashley: [ Laughs ] I think you're gonna turn out to be the real genius around here, you know that?

Ravi: [ Sighs ]

Chelsea: And how do you like the glitter topcoat? It's pretty cool, huh?

Faith: Mm-hmm. Goes nicely with the pink.

Chelsea: It sure does. All right. Now [Blows] Just give it 10 minutes to dry.

Faith: Okay.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I got to tell you, I'm so excited to have another girl in the house. It's gonna be fun. We can, you know, eat ice cream while we read fashion magazines.

Faith: You have ice cream? What kind?

Chelsea: Oh, yeah, we have ice cream. Let's see. We've got butter pecan. I mean, that's just house rules. We've got coffee gelato, if your dad hasn't eaten it all already. We've got french vanilla. And then, in the back of the freezer, behind the frozen vegetables, is a secret stash. Sea-salt caramel. But you have to promise me that you won't tell the boys.

Faith: Oh, they all sound great. We only ate ice pops at camp.

Chelsea: Well, you're welcome to it any time you want. Except before dinner.

[ Sighs ] You know, faith, all of this, it's gonna work out. It will. I promise. And I hope, eventually, you start to feel at home here.

Faith: That's something i still don't get.

[ Sighs ] You and connor could have moved into our old place at the ranch. But you didn'T. Instead, we're all here. What's the real reason dad moved us out?

Nick: Look, sharon, I'm sorry, I just don't buy that alice, the woman who adopted cassie, is involved in some sex ring.

Sharon: Nick...

Nick: And the "blond woman" thing -- I mean, you're blond! There's blond women everywhere. And that car is a very popular model. Did you at least, I don't know, take a picture so you can compare the two?

Sharon: No, I was too focused on chasing after alice so I could give her her credit card back. By the time I realized what i was seeing, it was too late.

Nick: How about the license plate?

Sharon: Not even a portion of it, neither time.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Okay. Did alice say or do anything that makes you think she's involved in something terrible like that?

Sharon: I asked her what she did for a living. She said she was working in sales. But, nick, I just have this feeling, this nagging feeling.

Nick: Okay, look. I think that you are very concerned about crystal. And, uh... I-I don't know. I just don't see any connection here, okay? I really don'T. I think it's just a coincidence.

Billy: Nothing would load on my phone, and I just wanted to see whether the... internet was working.

Phyllis: Well, is it?

Billy: Yeah, no. It seems to be fine. It's just, uh... just means it's my phone.

Phyllis: Well, just power it down, wait a few minutes, then power it back up. That usually does the trick.

Billy: Trying that right now.

Phyllis: Oh, well, I hope you were browsing for menus, because I am so hungry.

Billy: I was actually looking up something for work.

Phyllis: That is a four-letter word right now, okay? This time of night...mnh.

Billy: I got to go back to the office.

Phyllis: Now? Why?

Billy: Something came up that I got to talk to victoria about.

Phyllis: Can it wait? She got her loan. The company's saved. You can't rush back over there for every little crisis.

Billy: It's important.

Phyllis: It's always important. It's always a national emergency when it's victoria.

Billy: It's just business. Okay? I'll be back to you as soon as I can.

Chelsea: Well, your dad and i thought that this would be the best arrangement for everybody.

Faith: But why? We had a swimming pool there, and horses.

Chelsea: True. But here, you know... there are several advantages to living in town, you know? There's a lot of stores. Oh! There's a movie theater right down the street. You can order takeout whenever you want. Um, and it's also really convenient for -- for me and your dad, 'cause it's close to where we work. Oh, and it's close to your school, which means that it's close to your friends, which, by the way, you are allowed to have them over whenever you want.

Faith: [ Sighs ] But what about my family? Family comes first.

Chelsea: Well, faith, I'm hoping that eventually we all start to feel like a family. You know, you, your dad and I, the boys --

Faith: No. My family lives at the ranch. While I'll be stuck here half the time.

Chelsea: Faith, I know that change can be difficult. I really do. I'm just asking you to give this a chance.

Faith: Everyone keeps saying that. But I'm smart enough to know when something's wrong. This isn't right. We shouldn't be here.

Nick: Faith? What's going on? Why are you so upset?

Chelsea: Um, you know, actually, we got off track. We were having a lot of fun.

Nick: Well, what happened to change that?

Faith: It was fun. Until chelsea started talking about this being my home now. It isn'T. It's hers. I tried getting used to it, but this is never gonna feel like home to me.

Lauren: I wouldn't have asked about your life if I wasn't truly interested.

Michael: Let's avoid any big discussions about sharon if at all possible, please.

Lauren: I think I've been very open-minded, considering. I mean, I did invite you guys for dinner.

Scott: Yeah, that was weeks ago, and you still haven't gotten back to me with a date.

Michael: Any date but tonight.

[ Chuckles ]

Lauren: Honey, I'm trying.

Scott: I know you are, mom. I just wish it didn't require such a conscious effort to appreciate the woman who makes me happy.

Lauren: Well, if I was making a list of happy, carefree people in genoa city, it certainly --

Michael: Lauren fenmore baldwin.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Scott: It's my choice to make. And thanks for the wine.

Lauren: Wha--

Scott: Yeah, just shoot me a text about dinner, okay?

Lauren: Yeah. W-wait a minute. Are you upset with me?

Scott: No, not at all. I just -- I need to go someplace. And, uh, I'll leave you to your romance. Good night.

Lauren: Good night. We'll talk soon.

Scott: I'll hold you to that.

Lauren: [ Sighs ] Well, I guess we're gonna have to go through with that, uh, dinner.

Michael: Or you can do what gloria and I do, which is ignore the parts of each other's lives that you don't like.

Lauren: Honey, no offense...

Michael: I know what you're gonna say. But you have to admit, it keeps the peace. Now. Where were we?

[ Slow music plays ]

Lauren: Hmm. Let's see. I believe... I was over here.

Michael: Mm-hmm.

Lauren: And you...

Michael: Oh, yes.

Lauren: ...Were right here.

Michael: That's good.

Lauren: And I was about to...

Michael: Very good.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Lauren: Oh!

Michael: Do not answer that.

Lauren: But what if it's important?

Michael: [ Scoffs ] At this hour? Come on. We're not expecting anybody.

[ Doorbell rings ] Please, ignore it!

Lauren: No, no, no. Let me just get rid of them.

Michael: Oh, ple-- I wish you wouldn'T.

Lauren: Come on, honey. It'll be quick. Quick, quick, quick. Phyllis!

Phyllis: Thank god you're home. Why is it so dark in here? Is the power out?

Michael: Nope.

Phyllis: [ Slamming purse ] I have had it. I have so had it with his damn ex-wife.

Lauren: Oh. I guess we're talking about...

Phyllis: Billy and I. We have a lovely evening, a perfectly romantic evening, and then all of a sudden, he is off to work to meet her again. So another perfect, romantic evening just completely in shreds!

Michael: Mm. Somehow, I can relate.

Neil: Whoa! Look at you! Nothing but net!

Victoria: That's right! Well, I've had nothing but practice lately.

Neil: [ Sighs ] We got to get you out of here. Home to your kids, you know.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Well, with things settling down, I think that might actually be possible. You know what? It feels like a huge weight has been lifted.

Neil: And if my company is even partly responsible for that, I'm glad.

Victoria: You're entirely responsible. I just want to thank you so much for alleviating all of this stress for me.

Neil: Yeah.

Victoria: And my doctor will be happy about that, too, let me tell you.

Neil: Go back, go back. What do you mean your doctor? You okay?

Victoria: Yeah, just things have been a little tense lately. There have been a couple times when I thought I might totally lose it.

Neil: Wait. Listen to me. If you ever need to talk, or hear from a friend that you're not losing it, I want you to call me, okay? 'Cause you've had a few rough months. And you're not alone. There are people who care.

Victoria: Thank you. That's nice to hear. I'm in better shape because of you.

Billy: Hey, you two.

Neil: Hey, billy.

Victoria: Hey.

Billy: Hey.

Victoria: What are you doing back here? I thought you went home?

Billy: Yeah, uh, something came up.

Victoria: Oh.

Neil: Well, I'm gonna leave you to it. Thank you so much for dinner. And thank you so much for this.

Victoria: You're so welcome. Call me if you have any questions.

Neil: Yeah, I sure will.

Victoria: Okay.

Billy: From the bottom of my heart, man, uh... thank you. For the bridge loan for brash & sassy. You and devon saved our bacon.

Neil: Come on, man. Glad to help.

Billy: Thanks.

Neil: Take care.

Billy: See you.

Victoria: Okay. So? What's going on?

Billy: I was able to get into jabot's server. You were right to be worried. They got plans to smash us to bits. And it's all right here.

Alice: I think you came here to tell me I'm a bad person and a bad mother.

Sharon: That is not true.

Alice: [ Scoffs ] But it's how you really feel. You can't stand the thought of me ending up with the kid you dumped. Remember that, sharon. You gave cassie up. I took her in.

Sharon: Now, you're not being fair, alice. I gave my baby up for adoption because I had no choice.

Alice: We always have choices.

Sharon: Well, you know what? I made that choice when cassie was born because I thought it would be the best thing for her. And I was only 16 years old. I had no money. I had no job. I had no husband. I had no way of caring for an infant. So I let her go. I did it because I thought it would give her a chance at a better life than i could provide. And I did it because I loved her. That's what I'm asking of you now, alice. To think about how much you love that little girl. To think about where she'll be happiest and most secure. Where she'll have the best life.

[ Knock on door ]

Scott: Hey. What's wrong? What's going on?

Sharon: I, uh... just got a blast from the past this evening.

Scott: Something bad?

Sharon: Maybe worse than before.

Nick: Look, I moved us here because it is the best thing for our family. All right? You don't have to like it. You don't have to understand it yet. But, sweetheart, I do need you to accept it. And I absolutely need you to respect chelsea, and not go out of your way to hurt her feelings.

Faith: Dad, I wasn'T. I swear.

Chelsea: Yeah, I think faith was just confused. For good reason. I think we need to understand that.

Nick: Well, as long as it was done in a constructive way. Look, I know this wasn't your decision. And we kind of sprung it on you.

Faith: "Kind of"...?

Nick: I already took you out to the ranch once today, and it was a trip I wasn't planning on making. And now chelsea is here, bending over backwards to try and make you feel welcome. You know, you keep saying you're a big girl, and I think it's time you show us that.

Faith: Okay.

Nick: All right. So why don't you, uh, go upstairs and think about all this?

Faith: Okay.

[ Sighs ]

[ Nick and chelsea sigh ]

Chelsea: This is all my fault, nick. I made everything worse.

Phyllis: I'm being serious, michael.

Michael: Oh, believe me, I know. I am merely saying that I can relate to having your romantic plans blow up without warning.

Phyllis: If it happened once in a while, I -- I could handle that. But it's all the damn time.

Lauren: Well, so, billy's committed to his job. That's not a bad thing. Sometimes work takes priority, like me during the holidays, michael during a big case.

Michael: But we also know that it's important to make time

[Smooches] For the two of us.

Lauren: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: So do we. Or so I thought. I mean, the night started out perfectly, but it was just... I don't know. It... [ Sighs ] It... billy just seemed off. I mean, I can't put my finger on it, but I know it has to be about victoria.

Billy: Dina's working on some marketing analysis because jabot is buying parker beauty.

Victoria: Jabot is buying an outside skin-care line?

Billy: We did commandeer their lab.

Victoria: Well, it must be hush-hush, because I haven't read anything about it in the trades.

Billy: They're just waiting for the sale to go through. And it looks like they're using the entire product line in the mix, and adding more down the road.

Victoria: Okay, well, good for them. It's quite a coup, but it's not a direct assault on brash & sassy, so why did you rush back here to show me this?

Billy: Look what I just highlighted.

Victoria: They want to take brash & sassy products out of fenmore's?

Billy: Yeah.

Victoria: No, no, no, no. They can't do that.

Billy: Yeah, they can.

Victoria: No, they can'T. And I'll tell you why. We have a contract.

Billy: Fenmore's can break the contract as long as they give us an appropriate notice. And they're under jabot's umbrella right now, so why wouldn't they play up the synergy? Right here, that's the projected launch date.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Unbelievable.

Billy: Looks like they're set to go public with this.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] And they want to steal our shelf space to do it.

Billy: [ Sighs ] It's unbelievable how far jack and I have drifted apart, because it's so clear that his hands are all over this.

Victoria: You actually went through with it. You used dina's password on phyllis' computer to log in to their system.

Billy: It was the only way i could see what jack was up to.

Victoria: Thank you for putting your relationship on the line for this company.

Billy: Well, I didn't feel good about it at first, but now... I got no guilt.

Victoria: Do you think that phyllis knows about their plan to put us out of business?

"The young and the restless"

will continue.

Nick: Faith is having a hard time. It's not because of anything you're doing.

Chelsea: Yeah, but i should've known not to use the "h" word. What was I thinking?

Nick: Chelsea, you want her to feel like this is her home.

Chelsea: Yeah, but it was too soon. And we were having so much fun. I...

Nick: Please stop beating yourself up, all right? It's my job to help her adjust.

Chelsea: But I thought we were in this together?

Nick: Of course we are. You know, the reason this is happening is 'cause sharon and i let her pick where she wanted to live. And she picked my parents. It was a big mistake.

Chelsea: What, letting her stay with victor and nikki?

Nick: No, letting her feel like she gets to call the shots. I don't want to feel like I have to be too strict with her, but until this blows over, I may have to.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Chelsea: Hi, there. Can I help you?

Nick: Al! Hey, man.

Al: Hey.

Nick: Come on in. What a nice surprise.

Chelsea: What am I missing?

Nick: Uh, this is al. He's worked at the ranch for... I don't know, man. How many years?

Al: I started around the same time as buck. I'll leave the math to you.

Nick: [ Laughs ] Al, this is chelsea. Chelsea, al.

Al: Hi, chelsea. Pleasure.

Chelsea: So nice to meet you.

Nick: It's great to see you, man. How are you?

Al: Ask me again after I've unloaded all of the furniture I've got downstairs.

Nick: What are you talking about?

Al: Victor sent me over with girls' bedroom furniture.

Lauren: You shouldn't let this get to you. Billy chose you. They've moved on. Victoria is no longer a threat.

Michael: Lauren's right. I spent a lot of time with them during their lawsuit when I was representing brash & sassy, and if anything was going on between those two, I never picked up on it.

Phyllis: I know billy's not cheating on me. It's her I don't trust.

Lauren: Why? You don't think she's after him, do you?

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] You know what I feel? I feel like, when billy and i moved in together, victoria upped her game to get billy back. And I don't think she's above using her company to do it.

Billy: Phyllis wouldn't help jack sabotage us, okay? She's not involved in any of this.

Victoria: Do you know that for a fact?

Billy: No, I don't know it for a fact. But I believe that, okay, and I hope that it's true.

Victoria: Phyllis would love it if we were not working these insane hours together. In fact, she would love it if we weren't working together at all. And don't forget, she worked for the department-store chain that would like to put us out of business.

Billy: She's not involved in this, okay? Because she would warn me.

Victoria: Well, you give her way more credit than I do, billy.

Billy: Jack would not trust her with this information, because he would be afraid that she would come to me with it.

Victoria: Is it possible that you haven't noticed how well those two are getting along lately?

Billy: Okay. Phyllis is not the enemy here, okay? This is jack. And now we have proof that he is out to decimate us. Which is exactly what will happen if our products get pulled from fenmore's shelves. And every other department store follows suit, we are out of business -- in north america, anyway.

Victoria: Just when I start to think that everything is gonna be okay, then another shoe drops.

Billy: We're gonna be okay. Because jack's plan was to blindside us. Now he can't do that. Now we take preemptive measures. Starting now. Come on.

Ashley: What about packets of moisturizer as well as jars? That way people could throw them into their attaché cases or their travel bags.

Ravi: Biodegradable?

Ashley: Of course. What?

Ravi: Just...you. How animated you are. When you're creating, in your element. It's fun to watch.

Ashley: Aw. Remember earlier when I said i needed to be alone?

Ravi: Mm-hmm.

Ashley: Maybe I didn't need to be alone. I think I'm just so used to flying solo that I... I shut people out. It's a very bad habit I have. It's nice to know that there's somebody I can lean on once in a while.

Ravi: Oh, I'm all yours. Lean away.

[ Knock on door ]

Ashley: Come in.

Billy: Ashley.

Ashley: It's so late. Is everything okay?

Victoria: Yes, uh, we'd like to hope so.

Ashley: What does that mean?

Victoria: I was up here earlier to see jack, and i talked to him about ending this war between our two companies. Your mother happened to be here, and she was all in favor.

Ashley: How did jack respond?

Billy: How do you think?

Victoria: Look, jack pretended to like the idea, but actions speak louder than words.

Ashley: Okay, has jack done something?

Billy: I was hoping you'd be able to tell us that.

Sharon: Seeing alice again... god! It was almost surreal.

Scott: How could it not be?

Sharon: You know, on the surface, we had this pleasant conversation. But all I could think about the whole time was cassie. And how devastating it was to lose her.

Scott: That must have been so painful. But it's all in the past now. I mean, alice can't hurt you. Not anymore.

Sharon: That's just it. She may still be trouble.

Scott: How?

Sharon: This is gonna sound...out there. Just...when you hear it, don't say that I'm crazy.

Scott: I would never, ever call you that, sharon.

Nick: Why would you tell al that we'll accept a delivery from my dad?

Chelsea: Uh, because the furniture is ours, for one. I mean, we paid for every piece.

Nick: No, I realize that.

Chelsea: I mean, who cares why victor changed his mind? All that matters is he did. It's a good thing, right? Why question it?

Nick: I just know how much time and effort you spent on designing faith's bedroom for her, and I don't want to let victor ruin your gift to her.

Chelsea: All right, well, we won't let him, then. Can I call faith down?

Nick: Sure.

Chelsea: Okay. Hey, faith? Can you come down here, please?

Faith: Hey. Am I still in trouble?

Nick: You know what, let's put that on hold for now. Uh...do you remember when chelsea and I said we had an amazing surprise for you?

Faith: Something about a new room. But it's not ready yet.

Nick: Well, that was then.

Faith: You mean it's here?

Chelsea: Yeah, I designed a whole new bedroom for you, faith. Furniture, lighting, comforter, everything.

Nick: We had it all ready to go at our old place, but then we moved here and, um... uh, my dad decided to just store it at the ranch for us. But now that we're officially moved in, it's on its way up.

Faith: [ Gasps ]

Chelsea: Are you excited?

Faith: Yeah, I guess.

Nick: But no matter how you feel about it when you see it, you are gonna thank chelsea, right?

Faith: I promise.

Chelsea: Oh.

Nick: Here we go.

Faith: [ Gasps ] Oh, my gosh! I love it! Oh! [ Squeals ]

Ashley: Well, come on. Let's not play games.

Ravi: If you're here to accuse jack of something, do it.

Victoria: I would like to think that jabot wouldn't try to muscle brash & sassy's products off of fenmore's shelves to make room for your new skin-care line.

Ashley: I don't know what you're talking about. How did you know that?

Billy: Our re-orders have slowed down, okay, so it occurred to us that jack might try and take advantage of that.

Ravi: So this is purely a hunch based on no evidence?

Victoria: It's no secret that my company has had some challenges lately, contributing to our slump in sales, and that was before the recent bad publicity hit.

Ashley: And, victoria, on that front, I mean, you really do have my sympathy. I tried to warn you at the underground. I've had my own run-ins with hochman. He's an idiot. I'm sorry that your dealings were made so public.

Ravi: If it's any consolation, I've wanted to knock him out a few times myself.

Victoria: Thank you. That's very nice of you.

Ashley: In answer to your question, if jack is up to something nefarious, ravi and I have absolutely no knowledge of it.

Victoria: I appreciate your candor.

Billy: Can I speak to my sister alone, please?

Victoria: Sure. I'll wait outside.

Ravi: Me too.

Billy: If jack was up to something, would you tell me?

Victoria: So, thank you for sharing your feelings about benjamin. I appreciate that.

Ravi: Oh, I'm sure we're not alone. He's probably insulted people from coast to coast. I met him in new york -- once was enough. And then he has the gall to show up here after ashley told him where to get off.

Victoria: "Here" as in... genoa city?

Ravi: No, "here" as in right here in jack's office.

Victoria: So, benjamin hochman was originally here to make some kind of deal with jabot?

Ravi: I'm not sure. Just know he met with jack and ashley behind closed doors. And then later with phyllis.

Victoria: Hold on a second. Benjamin hochman had a meeting with phyllis?

Sharon: Same color car. Same make and model. And no, I didn't get a license-plate number. Both times it peeled away so fast.

Scott: This alice, I take it she wasn't what you'd call a model citizen back in madison?

Sharon: [ Sighs ] She was always broke. She couldn't hold down a job. She neglected cassie so she could hang out in bars all day long, chasing after men. You know, I grew up poor, too. But mom and I worked hard trying to make a better life for ourselves. Alice was the opposite. And then... I run into her this evening and she's all cleaned up, wearing expensive clothes, and driving a much nicer, newer car.

Scott: Yeah, but you -- you haven't seen her in a long time, right?

Sharon: Years. So I suppose she could've gotten her life together.

Scott: Or she could've gotten hooked up with these sleazeballs, and now she's making a fast buck exploiting young, vulnerable women.

Sharon: Do you really think it's possible? Because nick chalked it off as a fluke.

Scott: To hell with that. It's a viable theory. Unlike nick, I trust your instincts. And this is worth pursuing. So I'm gonna help you. I'm gonna find out what, if anything, alice is up to.

Faith: [ Squealing ] My room is so awesome now! How did you know I wanted a vanity like that?

Nick: Oh, that wasn't me. That was all chelsea.

Chelsea: When I was your age, I always wanted a vanity like that. But my mom and I, we moved around so much that I could never pick one out. So, now, thanks to you, i finally got to pick one out.

Faith: Ohh!

Chelsea: Oh.

Faith: Thank you so much, chelsea. I love it. It's the greatest surprise you could've ever given me. I'm so sorry I got mad before. Can you forgive me?

Chelsea: Oh, sweetheart, I already have.

Faith: Heh. This place feels more like home because now I have a bedroom that's all mine. Hm. Grandpa really knows how to make things right for me. Isn't he the best?

Nick: Victor hijacks her bedroom, gets the credit?

Chelsea: Not all of it.

Nick: He shouldn't get any of it.

Chelsea: I'm proud of you for not throwing him under the bus. Faith has enough on her plate right now.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Chelsea: You did what's best for your child.

Nick: The scary thing is, dad believes he's doing the same.

Ashley: I give you my word, I have no idea what you and victoria are talking about. And I have absolutely no knowledge of anybody trying to force you out of fenmore'S.

Billy: I trust you. Jack, not so much. When's he gonna finally bury the hatchet with this? I mean, even your mother thinks it's time to make peace.

Ashley: That's the second time you've mentioned dina. How chummy are you two getting these days, anyway?

Billy: [ Scoffs ] "Chummy." I mean, I hardly know her. We had a couple conversations in the elevator. She hates my mother. So I wasn't expecting warm and fuzzy. I was also surprised that she... she wants peace in our lifetime.

Ashley: Well, if she can help heal the family, more power to her. I just... I'm not very optimistic, billy.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] What were phyllis and benjamin meeting about? You have any idea?

Ravi: I only overheard them making plans to meet on the roof deck at the athletic club.

[ Voice fading ] And since the meeting was out of the office, I don't know what it was about. Phyllis never even mentioned it. It may not have even been about business.

[ Normal voice ] Victoria, are you okay?

Phyllis: You know what, I just -- I feel like sometimes billy feels guilty for being with me instead of victoria. On account of the kids, I suppose.

Lauren: [ Sighs ]

Michael: Did he say that? Or are you just speculating?

Phyllis: Educated guess. So now he's overcompensating by being a workaholic.

Lauren: Mm-hmm. And you're retaliating by colluding with jack, and trying to convince me to give you their shelf space for jabot's new skin-care line.

Michael: What?

Lauren: [ Chuckles ]

Michael: Is that right?

Phyllis: [ Huffs ] It was a simple business decision. That's all.

Lauren: Simple? You?

Michael: Heh, heh. Ohh. You talk a good game about how secure you are with billy. If only his ex-wife weren't so demanding. But if victoria's company went belly-up, then he'd have all kinds of free time then, wouldn't he?

Phyllis: Fine. All right. I'm -- I'm really... I'm tired of pretending. I know how important the job is to billy. But I don't give a damn about that company. If it collapsed tomorrow, I would set off fireworks.

Ravi: [Distorted] Victoria, what's wrong?

[ Normal voice ] Hey, can I get you anything? Like water, or...?

Victoria: No, I-I'm fine, ravi. Actually, I've never been better. Since now I know that I am not the only woman who spent time with benjamin, it's shed a whole new light on things. It's given me a new target to focus my energy on.

Phyllis: You know, I've been understanding long enough. Something needs to change.

Next on "the young and the restless"...

Hilary: Mariah, I really am sorry.

Mariah: Why?

Hilary: I ruined your date with devon the other night.

Nikki: Are you planning on destroying my daughter's company?

Billy: I am not gonna let you or this company become collateral damage.

Victoria: No matter what the cost?
